Overview

The Privacy and Human Rights 2001 annual report by EPIC and Privacy International reviews the state of privacy in over fifty countries around the world. It outlines legal protections for privacy, new challenges, and summarizes important issues and events relating to privacy and surveillance. Updated and expanded for 2001, the report includes new sections on genetic privacy, location tracking, authentication and identification requirements, electronic numbering, corporate sharing of information with governments, and the privacy implications of digital rights management schemes. The Privacy and Human Rights report finds that many countries are moving to enact laws to guarantee freedom from government and corporate surveillance and intrusion. However, technological developments, law enforcement demands, and business efforts to exploit personal information continue to pose new threats to privacy and anonymity in today's society.
